Good news Rangers fans:  there is live Texas Rangers baseball today!  Yes, it’s “only” a Spring Training game, but it’s a game nonetheless.  And how long have we been waiting for one of those?

We’ve got some more good news for you coming out of Rangers camp.  Injury updates are abound!  Most of them positive.

Matt Harrison:  You know the story on Matty; soft bed, sore neck, MRI.  The newest update is that Harrison threw long toss this morning and reported no issues.  While he is still expected to miss the start of the season, this is still a good start to getting him going again.  There was no mention of what is next on Harrison’s rehab schedule, but I’m sure it will still be a while before they get him on a mound.

Shawn Tolleson:  The right hander is headed to see a doctor for his shoulder soreness.  He had been day-to-day, but hadn’t thrown yet.  Let’s hope a visit to the doc is just precautionary.  Although…I don’t think so.

Geovany Soto:  The Rangers catcher is recovering from a minor foot surgery that he had last weekend.  Soto was never expected to miss significant time with this recovery, and it seems things are moving along as planned.  Yesterday he mentioned that March 15th is his target date for game action; with baseball activities resuming before, of course.  He expects to be ready for Opening Day.

And finally…

Jurickson Profar:  Profar is fighting a little shoulder tendinitis and was restricted from throwing, as you probably know.  He began throwing yesterday and is still expected to be ready for Opening Day.  Here is your full update on that.

Now that you are all caught up, let’s get ready for some game action.  Your friends here at Nolan Writin’ will be live blogging the game, starting at 2PM.  Join us!
